Paco Park - Review
Probably one of the most beautiful parks in Manila and in the Philippines, Paco Park is a national park and cemetery located in the center of Manila city. The park was originally meant to be a cemetery for wealthy Spanish families during the 1800s. It was designed by the talented Nicolas Ruiz who made it a verdant landscape thriving with old trees, bushes and lawns. It was converted into a national park in 1966.
It was here that Dr. Jose P. Rizal was buried by the Spaniards after his execution in Luneta. Paco Park is also the final resting place of Mario Gomez, Jose Burgos and Jacinto Zamora, three priests that were executed by the Spanish in 1872 for their participation in an uprising against Spain.
Chirpy birds, green havens and gurgling fountains beckon visitors to this beautiful park that is truly a slice of heaven.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Manila itinerary 2 days.

Paco Park, Manila Reviews
Not too much special. But I got a beautiful moment with a team of young girls in traditional custome. Philippinese is very friendly.
A comfortable place to find peace. It's actually previously cemetery turns to be park. Just creepy cause at night, there's no lights in here.
I keep coming back to this place whenever I get the chance when I'm in Manila. I like the layout and how calm it looks when there aren't a lot of visitors around. It's one of the few open air respites in the busy metropolis where there aren't a lot of people milling around. If you are in a contemplative mood, this is one place to go to. Plus, you get to learn a few things about the past. For one, this is the place where the Philippines' National Hero was buried right after his execution.
In the middle of Paco is a small, circular cemetery (and church) built during the Spanish colonial period. This is the place where Jose Rizal was initially buried. Now, this place is more popular as wedding area.
Its good park,comparative small and a church is also there - good place
